There was a proposal on the table for NHL general managers: if teams failed to score during the four-on-four overtime period, then four minutes of three-on-three would follow.
Sounds exciting, eh? The world's best hockey players getting the chance to skate and stickhandle and shoot with lots of open ice.
Naturally it got voted down Wednesday so games undecided in four on four go straight to a shootout. I like the shootout but three-on-three would have been better and been a more team oriented way to win or lose a game.
